WHAT I LIKE?
47 Meters Down is a great addition to the shark genre that has somehow stood by its unique plot among the rest. I mean, who would have thought to make a movie out of a shark cage gone wrong formula. The movie has effectively interpreted its premise into a very thrilling and horrifying feel that would some how give audiences running out of their oxygens as well. For me, I was impressed with the overall execution of the movie. The whole production design which is basically underwater was shot beautifully. I really like the dark and eerie atmosphere below plus the presence of the cage itself. The movie was effective enough in bringing deep sea horror with great cinematography and sound engineering. I also like the fact that sharks were not so overrated here. There were a lot of edge-of-the-seat moments and the chaos in the film was arranged brilliantly to give way to some unexpected twist and turns too. I won’t spoil the ending but I totally liked it. I like the action sequences especially that it was really done underwater. Of course, I have to give credit to Mandy and Claire for such a great performance in the film. It was not easy filming it and they have done justice to their roles. Overall, it was not as classic as Jaws nor as thrilling as The Shallows but 47 Meters Down is popcorn-thriller movie that will surely make you think twice in doing those shark-cage activities in the deep blue sea.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Well, if you can stop comparing it with Jaws and The Shallows, 47 Meters Down might be in your shark list.
